COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The tradition of porter is long and confusing. Ask five brewers what a porter should be like, and youre sure to get five different answers. Our Humble Porter was brewed without personal certainty of any kind. Instead, we looked to the past and came up with a beer resembling the porter at its height in Englands mid-19th century. Neither boastful nor reluctant, this beer was crafted with honesty, care, and an eye towards history. Drink up!

Dacrza (912) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2017
DATE: February 17, 2017... OCCASION: watching Pirates of the Caribbean with the family; coming from a sampler twelve pack... ... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... dark as night to start, as expected, but unfortunately the body scares away its head... what is left is a white ring... as humble as the appearance may be, the robust coffee aroma elicits great promise... a return of slight vanilla, peat, and anise... zero lacing doesnt feed the eyes... feels like flat cola going down--not to riff on the "humble" aspect, but not demanding a second sip... thin and slick, oily to a fault... the coffee is the most recognizable taste, but that is not saying much... the vanilla and peat are barely extant.... the overall experience is not one that I will seek to repeat... useful enough to accompany a winters night...

Can from Brewtopia. Near black with tan ring. Lightly toasted nutty chocolate aroma. Toasted chocolate raisin fig nutty sweetness with some woody spice in the mild clean finish. Light body oily. Seems traditional enough. Good.

Picked this one up at Berts Better Beer shop in Hooksett, NH. Pours out a dark opaque brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasted dark malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. Some sweetness on the nose as well. Taste follows the same composition. This is a no frills kind of porter, which makes it a nice classic beer to enjoy. I like this one a lot.

Very good porter that was smooth drinking and sweet but not to the ends of a sweet stout. Good mating kept it balanced.

22 ounce bottle, Winter 2014 batch. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours very dark brown with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. The brew smells like roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. The taste is similar to the aroma, but theres the addition of some vanilla, nuts and woodiness. Nice balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its creamy, coating and smooth. Its easy enough to drink. I think its a very enjoyable porter! I liked it a lot, and at $5.99 a bomber I certainly wouldnt have any problems with buying this brew again. Definitely worth a try if youve never had it before.

Bottle sample at the tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 2/5/15. Brown pour with no head. Aroma of malt, roast and slight chocolate. Malty and roasty flavor with chocolate accents before a roasty coffee finish.

Bottle, as pictured. Not sure how old it is, but Ive had it for awhile. Nice beer. Dark pour, a little thin in the mouthfeel but not bad. Little bit of chocolate, little bit of caramel, kinda sweet overall. I enjoyed it though.

Strong coffee and soil nose, very earthy. A gusher. Brown, pours almost all head, tan, good lace. Coffee and cola flavor. Hyper carbonated, light body, astringent. I wanted to like this, but there are a few issues.
